Exact origin of this expression is unknown, but according to one version…

Bank robbers said: “Stick the hands up, Jack”, of briefly “Hi, Jack”.

 

 

Hi, Jack! :)

 

There are several reasons of hijack:

 

  • Draw attention to something.
  • Money
  • Political asylum
  • Revenge

Etc.

 

As you can see, reasons are different, but consequences usually are very sad.

In case of hijack, crew will lock the door. Then pilots will try to inform air traffic controller and will make attempt to land aircraft as soon as possible.

If there is risk of explosion situation may develop differently. Consequences depends on many factors.

Any way pilots will try to inform controller. Either voice of by squawking 7500

Nowadays level of safety is very high and possibility of hijack reduced to minimum.
